WATCH: Coconuts TV short documentary ‘Yangon’s Fearless Taxi Ladies’

For several weeks Coconuts TV has been following a handful of female taxi drivers as they go on their rounds in Yangon.

It’s a male-dominated profession but these women have been making inroads.

They put up with a lot trying to ply their trade on the increasingly clogged streets of Myanmar’s biggest city, including harassment from customers, disrespect from male colleagues and, of course, fierce competition.

‘Yangon’s Fearless Taxi Ladies’ is our 11-minute documentary about their day to day lives. You can watch it here, on YouTube, or on our Facebook page.
